About the property

Situated in a hilly, private lake neighborhood, this quiet 2000 ft2 one floor home is a perfect retreat.

The road is quiet and the speed limit is 20. In the back yard all we see are deer, woodpeckers, green heron, and squirrels. The many mature trees form a massive overhead canopy. The backyard includes a hammock, trampoline, fire pit with permanent seating, and a large 18' x 12' deck with a gas grill. A back fence gate lead down to our private dock area, which is the very rustic home to our pontoon boat, which is electrically powered. Two batteries are provided so you can silently (though slowly!) glide down the creek and onto Indian Lake, a well-kept local secret. The 60 acre lake is heavily wooded in every direction and it's difficult to see any homes. Indian Lake is Home to blue & green heron, kingfishers, hawks, and occasionally a pair of bald eagles. Also deer, turtles, raccoons, etc.

Once inside the front porch, the master suite is off to your left and all three bedrooms are on the right. The central hallway opens up into a large living space where the kitchen, living room, and fireplace areas converge. The back of the house is all windows- 6 large windows show the fenced-in back yard and you can glimpse the creek just beyond that. The master bedroom has a maple king size sleigh bed and bath, two separate closets. All three dressers are birds eye maple pieces from the 1920's. Each side of the bed has its own reading light and LED light and outlets with USB ports. There is a private door to the side yard as well.

Two of the three other bedrooms feature bunk beds. Each is very simple but with ample closet space. All interior doors are heavy, solid core doors. The full bathroom is opposite the bedrooms and features mosaic tile work and a bathtub with shower.

Though quite plain on the outside (green & white trim), the home has an all new interior with upgraded appliances, electrical, high efficiency furnace & heat pump, etc. Decor is modern/ vintage. Vaulted ceiling in main living area. Built in Klipsch ceiling speakers. Hardwood floors throughout. Kitchen features a skylight above a large green quartzite island, high end stainless appliances, LED lit circular tile backsplash, and microwave, garbage disposal, toaster oven, dishwasher. Fridge is huge. Fireplace is local stone and houses a wood burning stove. Plenty of firewood in on the property, split and stacked and ready to be burned. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, and everything you might need for your stay. The newer stacking LG washer and dryer are excellent and our water softener and water heater are both newer.

We are 10 minutes from the largest shopping area in Indiana- Castelton- at the intersection of I69 and 82nd street. Downtown can be reached in 20-25 minutes. This area can be called Geist, Oaklandon, or Lawrence, but has an Indianapolis address.
